Screen Mirroring Compatibility

The Screen Mirroring feature doesn't work with the following Apple® devices:

  • Apple iPad® mobile digital devices
  • Apple iPhone® mobile digital devices
  • Apple iPod® portable players
  • MacBook® computers

As a workaround, use the available feature on your Apple device which works similarly to Screen Mirroring. These Apple devices also use a proprietary technology called AirPlay® Mirroring, which only works with certain Apple TV® devices.

Note: Visit the Apple Support Website for additional information and requirements about AirPlay Mirroring.

For MacBook Computers

If you have an Android TV™, you can display the MacBook screen through the Chromecast™ built-in application. For further details, visit Chromecast Support Website.

For Other Apple Devices

Use the Wi-Fi Direct® feature  for other Apple devices like iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
